4th of July


 We spent most of yesterday with my family Wednesday, which was very fun. We played games, Nathan got to swim and we roasted marshmallows and shot off fireworks. We are right in the middle of monsoon season here, so every afternoon about five-ish, the weather turns yucky and we occasionally get rain with lots of thunder and lightning.

Nathan wasn't quite sure about badminton. He could not figure out why we weren't running after we hit the "ball". ;) 

Then it was time for a popsicle in the pool with Pops. And the boys had a jumping contest for Nathan:

This didn't end as painfully as it looks like it did.

Ha! He thought it was the most hilarious thing in the world. He's been a fish lately - we will throw a pair of goggles on the seat part of the hot tub and he will hold his breath, dive down, pick them up and come back up without breathing under water. I can't believe he's already doing this and he's not even two. It scares me to death to think what he'll be like next year in the pool.

Nathan with his "more". He was too busy getting s'more stuff for everyone else to sit and eat his, so he only took about two bites. That's my son. The only time he is still is when he's sleeping.

The fireworks. He loved the sparklers but wasn't the biggest fan of the other things we got. After each one finished, he would say, "All done!" and we'd have to tell him there was still more. That last picture just makes me laugh.

He's become so funny. Yesterday, I ran with him to Walmart and I was trying to check the list to make sure we got everything and he said, "No, Mommy, Naynen do it!" so, I handed him the list and he looked at it and frowned and said, "Hmm...hmm..." and then he yelled, "Oh no!" I said, "Did we forget something, Nathan?" and he said, "Yes! Oreos!"

He is too much like his mama sometimes. ;)

If we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus... therefore comfort one another with these words.
